Memories of growing up in 1970s and 80s. Moving home a lot. Of being comfortable with playing on her own; that she liked her own company and of having big chunks of time when she could be on own. Of joining things on her own and than others following her. Later Susan talks about being an art student and clothes she wore in 1980s and clubs she visited in Croydon. Coming right up to her present day leisure activities.
FreeTime, Our stories of leisure then and now
An intergenerational oral history project studying the changing nature of our leisure time over the last 60 years. Find summary of this interview at www.freetimeourstories.org.uk
This project aims to preserve and capture memories, to ensure that an important part of our heritage will not be lost. This new archive will be housed at Dorset History Centre, so that future generations can discover the views and feelings of ordinary people through the descriptive accounts of their experience.
